    I have been working at Lingo24

    Pros

    I joined Lingo24 as I wanted to work with one of the world’s fastest growing translation agencies. I’m very passionate about my role as an Account Manager as it allows me to utilize my knowledge, experience, and skills to benefit both Lingo24 and their impressive list of clients. With the company culture they have created being at the forefront of everything they do, along with the friendly, entrepreneurial and inspirational environment, this is a company I am proud to be part of.

    Cons

    Nothing, I'm really happy within my role.

    I have been working at Lingo24 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's the people that make this company so great to work for! Most of the employees are open and transparent and you can easily relate to them, regardless of who you are. The industry is so flexible and has such different clients that you learn to 'think on your feet' and not to be contraigned by rules and procedures. By offering some benefits such as : holiday package, flexible hours and international travel Lingo24's really a great employer! Lingo24's culture is great as well and as long as you can embrace it you'll manage to not only do your work better but more enjoyable.

    Cons

    The cons would be overtime which is not required but is needed, especially since you end up working with different timezones. You also end up taking over actions which have nothing to do with your activity to help move the process along.

    Pros

    A organisation you will thrive in if you have ambition, drive and a willingness to work hard. There are lots of great minds, lots of great people and the only limitiations are the ones you put on yourself. The only environment i have worked in whereby an entry level employee can can make himself heard directly to the CEO if he chooses to do so and feels strongly about something. Culture at Lingo24 is considered as important as any other aspect of the business and is fiercely protected. The most important thing however, is that it is also lots of fun!

    Cons

    We're a global company and sometimes communication and consistent messaging is tricky to get right.

    Thank you for submitting this review. We are indeed looking to create opportunities for ambitious people to grow and develop all the time. We are committed to supporting people achieve their career goals as much as possible. We agree with you - our CEO feels very strongly about keeping communication channels open and wants everyone to feel their voice is heard. Openness and clarity are very important aspects of our culture, which we try to nurture and protect, as it is what defines us as an organisation.

    I have been working at Lingo24 full-time

    Pros

    Young, enthusiastic and friendly team, with lots of opportunities for personal growth (global travel, training, new jobs within the company). Everyone has additional performance-related pay. There is a can do attitude in the company, and people are willing to help their colleagues freely. The company has a good spirit.

    Cons

    Things can be chaotic. Priorities change more often than is useful. Some senior and middle managers are excellent, but others don't seem to get much done, and senior management can be too busy to correct this behaviour. The company does not have lots of funds to invest and tries to make do with small budgets.

    I have been working at Lingo24 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are some great people at Lingo24, people who care and give everything to the business and people you just want to share a beer with which was one of the main reasons I joined. The work is diverse and for me at least the fact no two days are the same adds to the fun.

    Cons

    There have been a lot of changes and it sometimes seems to be harder than it needs to be in a number of ways.

    I have been working at Lingo24

    Pros

    Supportive management. Relaxed environment. Passionate people. Growing business. Ambitious plans. Views get listened to. Inclusiveness. Small company means you feel like you can make a real difference. Fast pace. Lots of opportunities to be sociable. Good mix of personalities.

    Cons

    Infrastructure - smaller/newer business means lots of evolving processes. IT - lots of logins and different systems. Split offices sometimes feels like there is a disconnect within teams. Induction could be more structured. Expectations can outweigh realistic targets. Budget travel!

    I worked at Lingo24

    Pros

    It's a small, young company which still has a kind of start-up mentality. Its a fun place to work - great bunch of people and managers who really listen to their team and care about work-life balance. Opportunities to travel to other hubs.

    Cons

    Teams spread across different hubs and time zones mean there can sometimes be communication issues.

    Thanks very much for the positive review! It is really heartening to read that you see much of what I see – I do think we have an exceptional group of people at all levels in Lingo24. And when I say exceptional, I mean that they’re both good at their jobs and decent people who look after their customers/partners/suppliers and one another. Coffee! Yes! I wish we were in a position to invest more in coffee. We will do when the timing’s right. And regarding social stuff, yes, I think sometimes people are so busy, and so keen to keep that work-life balance right, that things slip. Several of us have recently become parents, so it’s trickier to make work socials happen. But in our Edinburgh office, there is now a critical mass of people who are generally up for spending time outside the office together. Re: communication, I couldn’t agree more. It is one challenge I’m always harping on about, and I feel that no matter how hard we try, we’ll never be perfect. Of course that’s not a reason not to try. Right now, we have our daily newsletter, the Daily Banter; monthly video updates from the Senior Management team; and we’ve just started monthly bulletins on our Tech Products and from our Sales team. Andrew and Carol lead regular update calls with our more remote hubs in Panama and the Philippines, and we seem to be getting better ratings as an SM team (ref. recent Lingo-ist engagement survey). That said, we are always open to new ideas. I wonder, for example, whether using video conferencing more might help? Something to consider. Thanks again for your review and all the best, Christian

    Pros

    Everyone worked their hardest to make things happen. The company gives as much responsibility at they can to each individual, even from day 1.

    Cons

    Communication between all the different offices seemed difficult sometimes.

    Thank you very much for this review and for your contribution to Lingo24. With regards to your comments on communication between our different hubs, it can be difficult at times, yes, but that's also a source of good dialogue and exchange of ideas.
